Tree Creeper

Not a brilliant photo as it was quite gloomy at the time, but a record of a new species for our garden list as this lovely little tree creeper spiralled up the fruit trees.

Anglesey Abbey

The light was very dull and the temperature very cold when I visited Anglesey Abbey yesterday afternoon. The very shallow depth of field seems to work well with the bracket fungi on the log walls. A bit of fill-in flash (Sony RX100) with the second tree helped lift the image a bit and picked out the snowdrops. The light was right for the ivy trunks and the strange figure that appeared.

Snowdrops at Chippenham Park

We enjoyed a visit to Chippenham Park for the snowdrop weekend today in beautiful warm sunshine. The flowers were at their best. Images 4 and 5 show the difference in the image that you get from normal viewing height and from using the camera close to the ground.

Leamington Spa Travel Lodge

 Leamington Spa Travelodge is probably the grandest TL I have stayed in. The conversion inside and outside has been very well done.

Southampton Museum and Art Gallery

 We visited Southampton SeaCity Museum and Art Gallery but found that photography was not allowed anywhere in these buildings - a definite no for future visits.

Wet New Forest

 It rained heavily all day Sunday adding to the already very sodden ground. On Monday morning we had a heavy snow fall but there was only a sprinkling left when I went for a walk on the Ober Water Trail. The warm colours in the swollen stream were intriguing especially where trees were reflected in the flowing water

Tablet photos

I thought I would try using my Galaxy tablet to do some photography as we have an Aperture evening where we are encouraging folks to bring iphone/ipad etc photos. Great fun to plan around with the ffects etc but think it would soon pall.
